Two disparate but nonetheless intriguing segments fill out this episode. First, Jon Chang and Kate Yandell talk about fracking. Second, Kelly Slivka interviews a marine biologist about a job off the radar: observing for marine life during dredge operations.
_Though this episode was food-themed at conception, it turned into more of a "drink" episode. Typical. First, Jon Chang asks some vendors at NovemBEER to talk to about their brews. Then Rose Eveleth and Colm Kelleher discuss a different kind of brew: coffee made from poo. Lastly, Kelly Slivka switches our gears to find out why DNA is called DNA.
